Protecting Senior Investors

Seniors aged 65 and over will make up 18% of the nation’s population by 2030.

It is vital that we are able to protect our senior investors from financial exploitation and some of the dangers of cognitive decline.

Scientific research shows that financial decision-making is often one of the first cognitive functions to decline, and even high-functioning adults can develop a vulnerability to financial exploitation as part of the normal aging process.

In this blog series, Protecting Senior Investors, SIFMA teams up with guest authors – including doctors, academics, financial professionals and more – to raise awareness and share information to help prevent elder financial exploitation.
